I have a post I wanted to get back to and add more info to my op but I cannot, is there any way I could get permission to edit the OP indefinitely?

Possibly.  :shrug:    Send a PM to Petrified Wood or Upthecreek if your 'grace period' for that opportunity has passed.   Only they have the power to change the World As We Know It. :hail:

Pretty sure PW set the time limit at 48 hrs. After that, "It's history".

You're better off adding a new "reply" to your existing thread, and quoting your OP in it.
That way your Rest of the Story will show up as a new post to readers. If you just modify your old post, it won't be flagged and chances are nobody will go back to "old news" and re-read it for the new info.
The more I understand, the less I know. Pretty soon I'll understand everything, and know nothing.
